The CRKT Berserker is a burly axe designed by Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical. It features a Tennessee Hickory wooden handle and a 1055 steel head that makes up the 19-inches of pure demolition. The head of the axe not only acts as just that, but a hammer as well. The finish is a manganese phosphate coating.
Rmj tactical designs are badassed and amazing. I was praying that he would bring out a civilian version of the beserker and he did. I love it, feels good In the hand Ole hickory handle ,an elegantly aggressive stance. Also ax head is made so it takes large bites,when cutting wood. Kudos love this design.
Purchased this axe for a camping trip. The axe did a decent job splitting wood that had been already chopped into quarters. My only hope is that the handle had little splinters. When my hand slid down the handle I can feel some splinters. I had to re-sand the handle a bit more smoothly. I also had to add some grip tape at the bottom of the shaft and a bit near the head. I am looking into changing the handle because when I swing and it the log the head has a tendency to roll in my hand. It is too oval.
